Hey Gimians .. Explore GIM B-School beyond classroom.

Hey Gimians ..
This is the thread which I always wanted











Edited by Oxymoron: To maintain consistency in thread titles for "[email protected] " series

Guys
We are finally at GIM .... Its been so long we have been living an dreaming GIM ... and I am so so elated on being here .. great people from all over India .... then the orkut guys coming together .. last but not the least the puys ....

Being a Puy is the perfect icebreaker .... and instead of names we introduced each other with our pg I.D
The feeling right now in the hostel is of elation ... ppl are so happy to be at GIM.. People who were slightly skeptical ... are thanking their stars , that they made the right decision ..

About Goa ... what better place than goa to have an education .. When I first came to Goa .... just fell in love with the place .. felt as If I am in a foreign land .. and life here has its own sweet pace .. this is the monsoon season here ....so humid ... rather very humid ..

We guys havent yet got the laptops as of now .. will take some time ... so would be using rather bugging the seniors for their laptops .....
I am at the O.T Hostel of GIM , and man its such a happening place , with a roomie who composes his own music .. , and one who has a fetish for the gym .. so life is good ... we play music .. go to the Gym .. so my tummy will be in check

Daily we go for long walks at night by the serene river mandovi ... sometimes even taking a ferry ride ( it's free)...went to the beach .. clicked some wonderful pics ... and also went for a movie ... the halls here are very very different ... and as I go to bombay wuite often .. so wasnt surprised on seeing the national anthem being played before the start of the movie .. and as I type , I have heard that HP ,as a laptop has been finalised ..

will keep more posts pouring in from other puys and would try my best to bring more guys to pg ...

Gim rocks so does pg

regards

"Acumen in natures lap"

Hi guys ,
Its been quite a few days , sinc ewe landed up here ..we had some preperatory quant classes .. and then we had our orientation classes ...

The director Prof Lima gave the welcome note , ad introduced each faculty ..Then we had individual sessions of orientations on time management , hostel, laptops , placements .. a din the end we had a presentation by saurav goyal rather our very own goyal_saurav on some project that they have in hand .. It was great to see teamwork from the very onset ...

The maturity with the seniors were handling it ... the way they were putting forward their case and expectations . made me realize what a lot I need to do to improve myself ..

Ours is a compact campus , saves us time .. with everything quite closeby ... all amenities are provided ... canteen serves excellent food , which is a rariy anyhwere .. we have representatives .. who pull up the mess guy like anything in case of any complaints .....
The only thing thats pinching me is the laptop .. it will be available by the 8th of july .. The college has finalised the HP NX6310 dual core laptop for us at 51152 rs ... 1.66ghz 512mb ram , 60gb sata harddisk, 15"screen , 512 mb pendrive , dvd combo ,6in 1 card reader , blue tooth , wireless b/g

Its a very good deal that we have got , the market price of this config is anywhere between 65 to 68k......

will post more

p.s srk4u must be 6feet 4 atleast .. a complete hunk ... my guess is that the real srk , will have a complex on meeting him

Happi's post reminded me of posting this , The director has got around 2 crores from the industry for GIM , has done a complete facelift of the institute , while still maintaining the traditional looks of the instiute building , which is nearly 400 years old ... atleast 100 ac were installed ... a new hostel is also under construction....The faculty rooms are just awesome

So nice to see you people so happy at GIM.
It is a pleasure having you guys here though I am still to meet most of you. Even the PGites..

hi puys...
one week spent at GIM
oh man....wat an exp....and we still have to goto the best beaches in Goa....so one can imagine that the best is still to come...

our batch is a unique batch...in the sense, we have hard core musicians....as aspire mentioned, we have a composer from delhi.....then we have a singer from euphoria (though she has left that band now), but she already has performed in 2 tracks from their latest album "mehfuz"...

and then there r these world cup freaks (thank god all the matches r telecast from late evenings onwards)....otherwise, we wud have had a tough time in making a choice btwn classes and matches!!

mandovi actually makes this place look heavenly.....u can really make that out whenever u take a ride in the ferry....

hope all weeks r as rocking as we have had so far....

smiles,
Tapan.

something more 2 cheer for...GIM directors interview on pg finally...:)
Arre Dosyon Mai Bhi aa Gaya
I was so lost in the serene n tranquil surroundings here that i forgot PG n Orkut n all...Arrived here on 21st...and have got room in ADMIN:) 😃
Some ppl hav got the perception ki OT ke samne to kuch hai hi nahin ..but as i m living in ADMIN hostel for past 8 days..they are one of the most spacious n cool rooms at GIM
Life here is pretty cool..Classes have started and the college is bustling at breakfast,lunch n dinner times..Almost all the seniors hav arrived..so there are 240 ppl at GIM right now..maza aa raha hai..
Introduction with seniors goes on till 1 or 2 in the morning..
In short..Loving my life here...
GIM rocks Man..

hey guyz..
one week into GIM...and i am already having the feel that MBA is all but not easy..man each day a case study is lined up..with more to come in coming days..and added to this 8 subjects in a trimester..dude,btech was hell lot easy..but still all this has its own charm...i was reminded of what my faculty at mba coaching had said "Getting into mba college is one thing and geting out with degree is another"...how true she was...!!newayz..panga liye hai to poora kar ke hi maanenge!..:grab:

So very true , each and every word that aman has said ... and to add to it ,he is the giy who is in the good books of all the teachers .. becoz of his excellent cp ... every member of our class is impressed by him .. coz of the points he raises ...

now abt me .. having a torrid time .. have recovered from viral ... man life while working was so good .. u could do anything u want .. so much freedom .. u just had to be accountable to urself ...

here life has become topsy turvy .. too many assignments , case studies. that too without a lptop at our disposal.. will be getting it by the 7th ....
I am doing decent enough till now , some classes are really hard to follow , specially the eco .. I being an engineer, has a natural dislike for the subject , inspite of having a very good professor for the same ... will be getting some books on eco .. and start putting in a decent effort ...

tommorrow intend to see superman and have dinner out ...

life is hard at gim... and we need to work harder to survive .. and come out with flying colours ... which we all shall

I must admit that the baton has been passed. As a kid we were told stories that times used to cme when the kings in the olden dynasties used to pass on the baton to the younger generation.

Though i must refrain myself from using the wrd younger, but i must say a lovely batch. And guys u are really doing a great job. On a personal scale, i must thank aspire and co. for the thread and their contributions. I guess u guys will take us to greater heights and will handle the queries in an more efficient and judicious manner than we handled. Kudos to the batch of 2006-08.

Looks like my stint with PG gonna cme to an end pretty soon. But its really nice to see the younger guns blazing all corners..
